About
The BTS Skytrain is one of the most efficient ways of getting around Bangkok, with over 60 stations across three lines. Avoid the infamous Bangkok jam and hop on the train—it stops by loads of major tourist attractions like Chatuchak Weekend Market, Lumpini Park, ICONSIAM and the Jim Thompson House Museum. Depending on how long you'll be in Bangkok, you can get a single journey ticket, a one-day pass, and a rechargeable Rabbit stored value card. But note that the tickets and passes are not valid on the subway (MRT) or Airport Rail Link (ARL). – Tripadvisor

    The best way to get around Bangkok
    Fast, clean, safe, and cheap. Choose your hotel to be within a 5 minute walk of a station and you can avoid the infamous taxi and tuk tuk scams. Maps and ticket purchases are also in English. There is 1 ticket machine per station with an English option and cash payment. This is easy to use. 1. Choose English in the top corner of the screen 2. Tap the screen near your destination station and then tap the station name. 3. Identify the number of tickets. 4. Feed a sufficiently large Thai banknote into the machine to pay. Your tickets and change will be provided. 5. Tap your card to enter and go up the stairs on the side of the last train station of your journey. Keep your ticket, as you will need it to exit.

    Best public transport option
    No traffic jams, all well marked and instructed, trains are convenient and efficient even when the city is smashed by heavy downpour. People talk English at the counters, you need to only be careful that sometimes are run with different operators and tickets are not same. Airport line and the rest. Really recommend

    BTS is fast and convenient way to get around Bangkok
    The BTS is a very convenient way to get around Bangkok. We stayed in Sukhumvit area in easy reach of Asok and found it pretty easy to get around. Buying a day ticket or multi day ticket is the way to go to save time purchasing tickets for each trip.

    BTS = Magic Carpet Ride
    It will be daunting. You will get turned around. But if you do get lost, no need to panic. You will find a map, an app or someone who can help. Remember, it’s an adventure for you and try to keep fear at bay. Bangkok is safe day or night. I advise you to get your own BTS card at the office located inside any BTS station - just take ten minutes and show your passport there. Save yourself the frustration of buying individual tickets. The turnstiles will flash the balance on your card every time you go through so you’ll know when to top it up. The BTS is a magic carpet ride to so many attractions in this city. Enjoy!

    Very reliable
    Bangkok BTS’s one of the best railway networks in the world! It connects to MRT too which let you access to anywhere in Bangkok efficiently with convenience. It’s clean, reliable and fast. You can get your tickets at the vending machine (bilingual) or the counter easily. Staff are enthusiastic and friendly. They’re always patient and very willing to assist you with their hospitality. Most passengers in Bangkok are polite and behaved too. Very comfortable to ride on the BTS

We used it to get to Icon Siam from Eastin Grand Sathorn Hotel. It was easy, clean, efficient, and uncrowded on a Sunday. Buying tickets is quick at the kiosks.

Easy to use / buy tickets and definitely quicker than facing the traffic on the road. Can get crowded so be prepared for that. Efficient, frequent and air conditioned.
